In 2007, Murray & Roberts Construction was awarded contracts valued at over R800 million for hotel, residential and piazza developments at Melrose Arch.
The Melrose Arch precinct is renowned for creating new and cutting edge spaces that fulfil both professional and personal requirements. Melrose Arch is a mixed-use ‘new urbanism’ development that provides retail, commercial and residential space, creating a unique urban experience. The project is located at the northern end of the existing Melrose Arch Development and will benefit from its strategic location, high quality office space, exceptional infrastructure, ample secure parking, safe environment and ease of accessibility.
Murray & Roberts Construction is responsible for the construction of 170 000 square metres of prime office and retail space as well as a basement parkade. The office space consists of 9 highly individualised office buildings. These offices are located within the unique ‘traditional city’ environment that will accommodate retail and leisure opportunities. These together with the adjacent residential areas in the Melrose Arch Development will form a genuinely integrated urban experience.
Murray & Roberts had completed earlier contracts at Melrose Arch in 2001 valued at approximately R188 million.
